I like whipped cream frosting but making it is just so difficult. Making it to hold on a cake without melting is even more difficult. I bought a packet of whipping cream for the failed Anna Olson Chocolate Tart and it was about to expire. Having no ideas how to use it up (other than whipping it to make whipped cream), I gave up and decided to give whipped cream another go. Continue reading
I once saw Bake with Anna Olson on TV and I fell in love with her kitchen (and presentation style) immediately. Those sugar drawers and huge ovens *.* So recently I stumbled upon this youtube user who has uploaded plenty of Anna Olson’s cooking series and I managed to catch all the Bake with Anna Olson episodes.

First week of school just zoomed pass and I’m feeling quite busy already! Lots of readings to read and lecturers’ accent to get used to haha! I quite like the modules I’m taking this semester, especially Environmental Economics. It is soooo interesting!

I have had a fairly busy week and this simple pesto meal really made things less complicated (I’m having some expression issues but you get the drift hahaha)! Continue reading

I was googling for banana recipes and I came across this 2-ingredient cookie. There are many recipes for this 2-ingredient cookie but I settled on this recipe. It looked simple and delicious enough. Curious to know how a cookie will taste like without flour, I decided to give it a try.
Chanced upon the recipe for potato wedges on Jamie Oliver’s website. I’ve always had a good impression on his recipes because the roast chicken recipe I used many many years ago was a smashing success.
I don’t know why but I can never get brownies right. My first attempt at non-premix brownies many many years ago was a complete disaster. It’s way way way too bitter and no amount of icing sugar could save it. My second attempt wasn’t that fantastic either. Determined to perfect my brownies skill, I have decided to make more brownies and this is the first of the many brownies posts to come haha. Continue reading
